(Id.) Upper 0e* Moinet Tuesday, November 23, 1954 Mexico City pawing" arid' the Horns passing under the horse's belly. The matador went to work With the cape again. The bull, arotls- ed and ugly, watched'the cape, forepuws togelherv angry and sullen. Blood Was running dawrt the fat flank of thlSbull find ;hiS nose—soft, sensitive", sweaty—quivered. * * » : Once during a piss ai Ihe cape, ihe matador fell down and the sword flew out of his , hand. He finally recovered ' " the sword, and there was some "booing" from ihe crowd. He Was bungling badly. Finally, he made Ih6 kill, but it was badly done. • ; - *••,». : .. Comic relief was'provided when youngste'rs vaulted the fence, and dashed into the ! ring with red blankets' and swords ready to do battle with a new bull who Was ready for fight. The bull tossed one of the lads three times-before he was •finally rescued, and they were carted off to jail. * * » Frinkly,~ one bull fight is enough, but the Mexicans sure like it. But what>chance has the bull? He just stays there being stabbed until he dies. * * * Mexico is a land of strange and exciting, contrasts wherje the. vestiges of pagan worship remain. However, it is one of the most deeply religious countries Of the world. Perhaps nowhere in the world are people as devout as in Mexico. Btil the traces of the Aztec culture persist-as bold .monuments •tortime, 6nd .these are situated not fat fforfi Mexico City. Liko the Egyptians, the Aztecs toiled for syear's to ,build, the great riyMMdsi iwhich* jilt-'.Majestically Upward toward tHe "heavens they honor. There ' they stand proudly against the battering of the- winds,' the- rain and the releritless erosion of time and elements. .::' •. ...... ...-*• At the pyramids of the Sun and Moon we got a good , workout as we climbed ihe 224 /steps to ihe lop of the great sacrificial altars which w.ere. used in religious cere- • monies and for human sacrifice. Human sacrifice was a common occurrence when ihe Aztec culture ' Was in its zenith, • ; B .'. *.,.*.* The road near the Pyramid of the Moon is called the Highway of the Dead because they have found so many graves along the way.; We visited the small square pyramid which was the temple of the blond god, Quetzaloall. Wo noticed the carved stone figures of the feathered serpent that decorates the walls. These' were sacred to the Aztecs.. . In a restaurant later, we ate turkey with mole sauce* -Mole is ( j an old A2tec dis.H atid i<i made of,' more than 20. herbs pnd spices and peppers, It is very hot..,.;•. (Thanksgiving . notes Eating Turkey this casually, may seem unusual to us who have Turkey only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Kossuth .county folks may be surprised i'tb leif'n, that the turkey ,is native to Mexico.)' • "•- ••'••- r .*, * * •'• We' visited the > National Museum in Mexico City wMfe rhany relies of the Aztec days are preserved, including the great sacrificial stone and ihe Aztec sun chart in which the Anlecs depicted the full year with Inscriptions cut into the ' stone. * *.- * While in Mexico City, material wealth is uncommon, spiritual wealth is abundant. On every street corner is evidence to indicate that the -Mexicans are a deeply religious people. '* * * » Some of the greatest religious landmarks in the world are in Mexico. Typical is the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadelupe which is so rich in religious significance and has such magnificent historical tradition. Pilgrims walk on their knees from distances of a block away to enter the shrine. f * * In front of the huge gray stone church, with its domes and cupolas of colored glazed tiles, were many little stalls selling medals and pictures and souvenirs of the Virgin of Guadelupe. The stalls had white canvas squares, 6Vfif them to shield the ownli-S ffom the sun. Ofl open charcoal stoves wC-men wer'e baking tiny cakes of the Virgin whl'rfKwefe afterward wrapped ih red and green tissue paper. ... . *. * * Over the main doorway, through which the crowd fentef» ed' the 'church, was an arcrH ot flo'wefs worked into conventional designs. Well dressed and 'hum< ble all pushed together toward the great altar; ..The music J of the organ filled the high arched domes. There was a murmur in the ever moving crowd and the shrill cries of many babies mingled with the deep throated tone, of the orgari. ' " . * * .,* . . >| -..'.,. _ V Outside along the streets, Indians were eating Tortillas and drinking coffee. Venddrs bore huge trays of bananas or pineapple and .cheese was also on sale. The atmosphere was breath taking. .',,*,, , ' .. i .

Handicraft products, all hallmarks of good' crafts- < manship, are sold in attrae* • live shops neat the main plaza, and here visitor* may buy the distinctive silver jewelry 'based on antique Indian designs'. * * * Food was always good, and it Was reasonably priced. A "light" supper" might include chicken legs, frijoles (beans), coffee, and, ot course, ( tortillas. . • • ,• x ,'• * ; * >• • . Mexico City is truly enchanting.
